Item Number: MSK-160E
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)


Optional Die Sets

MSK-160E is a compact Pressure Adjustable Electric Crimper for CR2016, CR2025, and CR2032 coin cells. The use of a 24VDC motor enables the operation inside a glove box under Ar atmosphere for Li-S, Li Metal Air and Li half-cell testing. The digital pressure controller can keep crimping force consistent at each time.  The compact size of crimper allows user moving it in or out from airlock chamber of glove-box. Such machine is CE Certified and NRTL ready.

  • 110 - 240V AC (50/60Hz) NRTL certified power adapter for worldwide use
  • 24V DC motor with reducing gear, 15W. The operation is very safe without further certification

Operation Manual & Video
Maintenance Notes & Warnings
  • Electrolytes are highly corrosive materials.The die set must be cleaned with alcohol after each use to avoid corrosion 
  • In the case a replacement die is needed, please click pic.1 in below to order.
  • The PTFE die (found at the top die) ejects the cell casing after crimping via spring loaded pressure. Do NOT over tighten the pressure adjustment knob to avoid damaging this PTFE die.
  • To set the proper pressure on the die, loosen the knob all the way until the spring compression is no longer stressed. Then start tightening the knob and stop turning it once the spring compression is felt.
  • This will prevent the PTFE die from becoming deformed by being subjected to excessive pressure. (Please refer to Pic.2 for details. )
  • Attention: Please use MTI Branded Coin Cell Cases with our crimper. We don't guarantee the crimping quality if other brand cells are used.
